MediaFLO adds three new all-news-all-the-time channels

Qualcomm’s mobile TV arm, MediaFLO has expanded its news coverage, just in time for the U.S. presidential race. The mobile TV service will now include three new 24/7 news channels: CNBC and MSNBC from NBC Universal and FOX News.

MediaFLO said the news services were timed to launch for the political party convention season.

MediaFLO USA’s mobile TV service is available to AT&T subscribers as AT&T Mobile TV and to Verizon Wireless customers as V CAST Mobile TV.

All three channels will offer simulcast programming, airing content at the same time as it appears on cable.
